Students in the I.T. Minor broaden their technology and business knowledge base and hone their individual skills through collaboration, preparing them for careers in the real business world. Whether you wish to work in an Information Technology role or a role related to your major, the I.T. Minor is designed to further your career aspirations.
The minor is designed to provide students with a multidisciplinary understanding of the role and basic mechanics of information technology in the contemporary workplace. Information technology specialists learn how to design and model information systems and business processes, plan and manage information systems projects, and program and test the resulting systems. Students develop core competencies in their primary area of study and broaden their horizons as they interact with others from different disciplinary backgrounds on real-world systems projects. Students completing the minor will be well prepared for employment in technology-oriented environments and will also understand how to be thought leaders as information technology applications continue to evolve in organizations and society.
These are just a few of the topics and skills covered in the I.T. Minor.
To be considered for admission into the IT Minor, a student must have been formally accepted to a degree program in one of the participating colleges AND they must have completed the required prerequisite courses. Prerequisites are: (a) Computer Science and Engineering 201 or 231 and (b) Mathematics 124 or 132.
